Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Jameis Winston underwent LASIK surgery Wednesday to correct his nearsighted vision.

"He didn't want to count out any options that he had that could possibly help him with the game he loves so much," Winston's publicist, Denise White, told NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. "This is the game he loves and he wants to be the best at it and if there are any options that can improve his game, he is willing to do it."

Winston opted for the procedure after throwing a league-high 30 interceptions in 2019. He also led the NFL with 5,019 passing yards and ranked second with 33 touchdown passes.

Winston is scheduled to become a free agent at the beginning of March. His vision issues have been known for some time, and Buccaneers head coach Bruce Arians said at the end of the season that his signal-caller "can't read the scoreboard, but he can see the guys in front of him."

Interceptions have plagued the former No. 1 pick throughout his career.
